210- Compatibility and Chemistry

In both a professional and personal context, the best relationships result from good compatibility and chemistry.

Compatibility is about the alignment of goals and values, while chemistry is about the emotional connection that results from the interaction between two people.

Unlike compatibility, good chemistry doesn’t require alignment – it simply demands complementarity – hence the saying “Opposites attract.”

But it’s important not to confuse the two. Compatibility of values should never be opposites, while an overabundance of alignment leads to low chemistry.

When trying to define the ideal relationship, be sure to consider the two halves independently from one another.
